What Is Diabetes Self-management Education?

What Is Diabetes Self-management Education?

Diabetes self-management education helps people to stay healthy and prevent costly complications, yet very few people with diabetes attend a course. Diabetes UK's Taking Control campaign aims to increase the provision and uptake of diabetes self-management education, so that everyone with diabetes has the skills and confidence to take control of their condition. This page gives healthcare professionals and local decision makers more information about patient education options. It includes resources to use with your patients and advice on improving uptake. People learn about their condition in different ways. A useful framework for understanding diabetes education, broadly based on a model used in Scotland, is in three levels: Level three: Structured education that meets nationally-agreed criteria (defined byNICE/SIGN), including an evidence-based curriculum, quality assurance of teaching standards and regular audit. Level two: Ongoing learning that may be quite informal, perhaps through a peer group. Level one: Information and one-to-one advice. Level three education: what is the evidence base? Diabetes education courses, often known as structured education, improve key outcomes, reduce the onset of complications and are cost effective or even cost saving. For a summary of the published evidence on structured education download Diabetes UK's reportDiabetes Education: the big missed opportunity in diabetes care (PDF, 285KB).

Diabetes Education

Diabetes Education

My grandpa had diabetes, lost his leg before he died. A day behind with Day 5 of Health Activists Writers Month Challenge. (In my defense I did post yesterday and yesterdays post was viewed more than any other post Ive ever written it just wasnt my Day 5 post Thank you to all who viewed the post and shared your thoughts your support means so very much.) Day 5 Challenge: If I could do anything as a Health Activist Think big today! Money/time/physical limitations are no longer an issue. What is your biggest goal that is now possible? And/Or Whats your one, three, or five-year plan for your Health Activism? If money and time were not issues I would work towards educating the world about Type 1 Diabetes. I would use either existing posters ( International Diabetes Foundation has created one) and/or create new posters, flyers, videos about the early symptoms of Type 1 diabetes to distribute to all doctors offices (pediatric & general health care providers), school health offices and hospitals. I mean truck loads of them and I would hire folks to hang the posters so they didnt sit rolled up in some back office where advertisements for over priced meds go). The posters would include illustrations of children and adults doing the things that many parents and patients miss (or explain away) prior to diagnosis or after it is too late to save the child/person. The posters will also identify myths about Type 1 well-managed diabetes is the cause of absolutely nothing (Dr. William Polonsky) complications can happen and will happen with poorly managed diabetes a person with type 1 diabetes is always insulin dependent a person with T1 has to check blood sugar at least 4 times a day yes it hurts a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes did not cause it to happen a person with T1 can do Continue reading >>

November Is National Diabetes Month

November Is National Diabetes Month

Diabetes can be a devastating illness. It’s the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States, causing more than 76,000 deaths annually, and even when the disease isn’t fatal, it can have serious consequences: every year nearly 12 million people have to report to the ER due to complications caused by the disease. One of the worst facts about diabetes, however, is that many people who have the illness are unaware. Experts estimate that as many as one-quarter of those with diabetes have yet to be diagnosed, leaving them vulnerable to the gradual destruction of their health caused by high blood sugar. Because diabetes is dangerous and sometimes overlooked, the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has named November National Diabetes Month. This event, which has continued uninterrupted since 1975, aims to promote awareness of the disease among the general public and recognize the daily struggle of millions of Americans to stay healthy in the face of this potentially devastating illness. Spreading Awareness The main goal of National Diabetes Month is to give physicians, public health officials, and those with diabetes a time to gain the attention of their community. To that end, the NDEP holds events and provides resources to those working to educate their friends and neighbors about the illness. The NDEP has set up a website to promote National Diabetes Month, and this website hosts several useful tools, including posts to publicize National Diabetes Month on social media (including free web posters and Facebook and Twitter cover images), pre-designed wall posters and flyers, and pre-written public service announcements suitable for local radio and television stations. In addition, the website offers a pre-recorded webinar and videos about National Diabetes Continue reading >>
